Not sure what they mean by halting beer production to make water... Its all fizzy beer flavored water to begin with but its a very nice gesture for those in need.

From my observation, "PBR stunts" start with chainsaws and beer, and end with ER visits.

Are they selling the water they are making?

Admittedly, I didn't read the cited article, but in what context are they "making" water?

My initial assumption would be that they are treating a municipal water supply to optimize for drinking.
